Valentino, preceded by Alessandro, but his main name is Valentino, shortened to Tino.

Liked Gabriel, but decided to save Gabriela for a girl.

A second boy would have been Francisco Raphael (Frankie)

DH and I decided and stuck with the names we gave our 2 DS, with no shortlist - luckily their names suited them!

DS1 is Dexter
DS2 is Dawson

I love the name Rory - there are quite a few here though. All depends on where you live!

Beachballfamily Thu 12-Dec-13 15:20:24

Rory - he's 5 now and we've never met another young Rory. Getting worried now that there will be lots more soon!

Also considered

Alasdair
Samuel

I have never met a little Rory yet but I bet it gets more popular. It's such a lovely, classic name but oft bypassed for others.

MrJollyLivesNextDoor Wed 11-Dec-13 19:16:30

DS is Aleksander (OH is Polish)

We also considered Daniel

I wanted Izaak or Robert (both vetoed by OH)

OH wanted Seweryn (pronounced Sev-Erin) - I laughed in his face
